Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
We're talking about the polity that re elected W. What I find most striking is that everyone sort of assumed that Trump's unique public grossness would make this election different. It wasn't. There was no mass exodus of suburbanites and white women from the GOP, most everyone voted along the old tribal lines.

On the Russian troll front: Quite irrespective of the question, where, between the actual 911 and the Iraqi WMDs they lie on the threat-delusion axis, the result of the Russian panic seems obvious: most internet communications already go over two internet behemoths. Now arbitrary denial of service gets legitimized. And if we go back at the prime examples of Russian interference from he first report, pushing BLM and anti - fracking activists, it is not difficult to see who will bear the brunt of this.
